Counterpane’s campus is on 16 wooded acres with organic gardens, farm animals, and a profusion of wildflowers.  The academic program relies on mixed ages, an interdisciplinary curriculum, and boasts a fully integrated arts program.  The students are drawn from six counties and reflect a wide cross-section of socio-economic backgrounds.
